What’s Trending at FFANY: the Canadian Edition.
From a classic colorway enhanced by cozy details to boots with a sporty edge, no one understands winter weather fashion better than Canadian brands. These three trends stand up to the natural elements and the elements of style. Stop by to see these brands and many more at the upcoming show to be held Jan 31 – Feb 2 at the NY Hilton Midtown and NY Showrooms. View brand locations and contact information at FFANY.org/brands.
Warm & Toasty
Like a mug of hot cocoa, cognac leather and suede boots instantly warm up winter days. The golden color is spotted across silos, from sneaker boots trimmed with shearling to city boots made to walk the streets in style.
Sneaker boots have become a full-fledge category, and no one understands the “casual cool” look better than Canada. Expect to see the hybrid style updated with trendy creeper soles, duck boot toes and cozy knit details.
Sumptuous suede is a must-have for Fall ’17. Fuss-free tall boots and simple patchwork designs are a subtle and modern nod to the 70’s.
These brands are showing January 31st – February 2nd at FFANY. For appointments, contact:
